Samsung plans to announce its upcoming Galaxy S IV on March 15 and begin selling the rumored smartphone in black and white variants during the second week of April, according to a new report on Wednesday.

The report, by Tech weblog SamMobile, which cited a “trusted insider,” further claimed Samsung would send invitations to the launch event after Mobile World Congress.

Adding more to the rumor pile, the S IV, dubbed “GT-I9500,” will supposedly hit Eastern Europe first, and then roll out to the entire continent and Asia by the end of April, while the rest of the world will see a May or June launch date.

As for specs, the S IV will allegedly sport, among other things, an 8-core Exynos 5 Octa CPU, 4.99-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD videos at 30FPS, 2-megapixel front-facing camera with 720p HD video, and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
